Automatically show tabulated total from one board on another

I am trying to track and view sponsorships. I would like to have a master view on one board, that shows me key contact information along with summary data on the total amount a company has sponsored, along with the various events they have sponsored.

On a separate board, I list out each individual sponsorship received over the course of the year, with many companies having multiple sponsor entries. On the main board, I am trying to get the aggregate total sponsorship received to be shown by adding up each individual sponsorship received.

I am trying mirroring but it appears I have to manually select each row that I want to be included in the total, which sort of defeats the purpose of building out the boards. Is there an easy way to do this?

Did you complete this sponsorship tracking? I’m in desperate need for a board meeting tonight

hi @David-ACT

Welcome to the community, a great place to learn! If you want to add each new item from board B to the mirror defined in board A you can do the following:

  • on board A create a connect_boards column and set it to create a two-way connection
  • now board B has also a connect_boards column, sometimes referred to as “the other side of the mirror”
  • on board B you can select the item in board A
  • using item defaults in board B where each new item links automatically to the item in board A
  • board A will now connect to each new item added to board B

Hope that helps.
